Limited Addition “Public Service” Orange Piquette 2022
Bree and Chad Stock are the stalwarts behind Constant Crush wines, and they created the Limited Addition label in order to promote Oregon wines from diverse and sustainable grape varietals while using low-interventionist methods in the cellar and working with farmers throughout Oregon who utilize eco-conscious farming practices. Their piquette orange wine is made from adding spring water back into wine must and re-starting fermentation, creating a fresh and tart wine that’s fun to drink. Traditionally these wines were made for farm-workers to enjoy during their breaks, and as such they make a refreshingly low-ABV accompaniment for picnics or beach excursions.
